Pros: Looks nice. Stays Cool. Shiny?

Cons: Unreliable. Failed on multiple large copy jobs. Disconnects randomly.

Other Thoughts: Drive connected to a 2012 Mac Pro running Lion via FW800. Was planning on using the drive as part of a media server. When populating the drive with media files, copy job of 1.2TB failed at 600GB. When copying the remaining 600GB, drive failed at 400GB. When copying another 500GB, drive failed at 300GB. Drive also disconnects at random times. If you leave the drive you often come back to a Red Stop Sign saying that the drive disconnected without ejecting. Have tried to adjust sleep settings to have the computer never sleep and the hard drive never sleep. Didn't work.
